Fall Break!...

For Fall Break this year, we had to stay in town since our stake went on TREK, and Emie had the chance to go!  We did, however, take a little escape to the mountains, and go to the cabin, where believe it or not--it is FALL!  I knew it was FALL somewhere--hard to believe, when temperatures at our house are still over 100!  I've lived in AZ all my life--born and raised, and STILL I get frustrated come October when we are still in triple digits.  It just wears on you, especially when school starts, and you are out of the house more and running errands.  Todd has been begging for years to move to Utah--usually during September and October.  We just long for one more season, when around here the two seasons are HOT, and WARM!
We had the chance to go up to Sunrise Ski Resort in Showlow for the day after church on Sunday.  It was so beautiful!  Every year they do a canned food drive, where you bring cans, and for each child under 12 that brings a can of food, they get a SEASON PASS for the year at Sunrise!  What a great deal!  We had a chance to ride the ski lift, and Jack loved it!  I have a much easier time getting off the ski lift when there's NO SNOW!  It's much less stressful too!  (Want to read about my first real ski experience?  click HERE or HERE).  Anyway, the kids were great, and had a lot of fun together!  We missed Emie--but I will post some of her Trek pictures later...she had an AMAZING time!
